It is still possible for the community to outgrow the Fortnite World Cup prize pool which is at $30 million dollars. The hype we've witnessed at the Epicenter is just a sneak preview of what is going to happen in August, when the 18 best teams in the world are competing for Dota's greatest prize pool yet.

The Valve factor*
Valve offered a weekend sale for Battle Levels and Treasure Bundles over the weekend. As there was an exploit that allowed people to benefit from this weekend purchase twice, the prize pool boost was probably massively affected by that. Valve reacted to that exploit by giving people, who did not utilise it, the opportunity to buy the bundle twice.
Earlier today, a loophole that allowed players to purchase two Weekend Bundles was disabled. But enough people exploited this already. So as a result, for the next 24 hours, people who did not exploit it will get a chance to also buy up to two bundle directly within the client.— Wykrhm Reddy (@wykrhm) June 29, 2019
